7 Lunar Month.

As most of you all know, the 7 Lunar Month has arrived again this year. This is the time where the Taoistism will pray for all the wandering souls all around the world. It starts from the 1st day of the 7 month according to the lunar calender and ends on the 30th day of the month. These wandering souls actually when a human died, there are no family members that offer prayers to them, no proper ceremony held to please their souls, or maybe died in a horrible way, thats why they wanders around.



I still remember during our childhood time, parents will forbidden us from going out from the house after 5 pm, or after the sunsets. They said that this is the time where all these wandering souls will roam the streets in your neighbourhood. If you go out, there will be no protections for you cause inside the house got GODS mah, right??? Being scared by this phenomena, all we do is be home before the sun sets, stay in the house, go to bed earlier, no more late night tv and so on and so forth lah.



But nowadays, when you look around you during this month in the big cities, where got such kinda ruling somemore??? Especially when there are prayers held by some associations, there will be concerts lah, bidding on certain artifacts, dinners on big scale...etc. And this prayers are normally held during the night time. I believe you have seen it before your own eyes right. Even children are all around this area at this kinda time. Arent' they afraid of anything??? Or maybe this advises and pratices have not been pass through generations???

And the most funny thing is that in Chinese we do not call it the " Ngor Kwai Festival ", but where the ang moh called it the " Hungry Ghost Festivals "??? Funny heh...

Anyway, take good care during this month. Don't travel at night if possible, and pray to God hard hard asking for protections and forgiveness yeah.........

Peace!!!
